Evidence-Based Nursing Practice

Evidence-based practice (EBP) is an approach involving all disciplines and incorporates research into the clinical practice. It is a process which utilizes the research findings and implements them to enhance the clinical practice, the environment of work as well as the patients outcome (Chrisman, 2014). EBP is very essential to be appreciated to apply in the healthcare practice and for the practitioners in the healthcare industry (Jolley 2013). There are components to enhance EBP like rising leadership with a commitment to enhance the standards and the processes in the clinical system of EBP to bring it into the routine practice and give support strategically from the management (Van Deusen Lukas et al. 2010). Evidence based practice agendas are used to advance quality nursing care based upon accurate clinical information in combination with the best research and information available.

A’s of Evidence Based Practice

In order to adopt the EBP approach, the Iowa model is followed

Research and Evidence Based Practice

 By 2020, the nursing practice would be 90% based on research findings acquired through the EBP. To meet with the goals of 2020, proficiency in the nursing practice is a must to evaluate the EBP research to give effective rationale for their actions. The new discoveries in the healthcare system become very important to bring effective change in the roles of the nurses and in their work environment. However, some (Chrisman, 2014) believed that 55% of the nursing practices is based on implementation of research. But it was observed that not great emphasis was given to implement practices and projects in uplifting child as well as the well being of the family (Fowler et al. 2012). Discoveries in Bennett's 2013 ongoing Australian investigation on nursing in early child rearing administrations found that nurses functioned admirably furthermore, valued the help when working with different controls. According to Biglan and Taylor 2000; Day 2013 it was observed a necessity to develop an efficient program to support families. It was very important to evaluate the experts experience, their understanding of the healthcare industry’s health support system to evaluate the influence on the well being of families and children. EBF is a research based system focusing on four criterias such as validity, reliability, relevance in the scenario of Covid-19 where one can rely only on research to apply care in the healthcare facilities. Recent studies are contrary to the findings of the above studies delineating the adoption of the practitioner’s findings in the selection and coordination of SBSF approaches into practice (Rossiter et al. 2011; Fowler et al. 2012; Day 2013; Hopwood et al. 2013).

Qualitative or Quantitative Studies

The discoveries of some studies additionally feature difficulties with time constraints and inspiration when learning various methods of working (Chrisman 2014) described the workings of the nurse profession to be significantly dependent on the qualitative or quantitative studies undertaken via research. In case of Covid-19 the nursing care regime is wholly dependant on the qualitative as well as the quantitative findings of the use of masks in preventive care. Covid-19 being a new strain with lack of research in the history, with changing results and theories, it becomes imperative for the nursing professionals to keep a track of the recent research developments to support their clinical expertise in handling Covid-19 cases. If all the members of the healthcare team participated and utilized the EBP findings then it could broaden the knowledge base as well as validate their clinical practices effectively as well. On the other side, according to (Bennet 2013) there was little notice of collegial help and functioning as a group with different disciplines, the capacity to question with associates and colleagues, and inquiring for help. Rossiter et al. (2011) additionally detailed that nurses thought that it was troublesome at times to continue their skill and efficiency to investigate issues altogether when working with weak clients. Fowler et al. (2012) found that all members perceived the difficulties of executing, creating and supporting a methodology that contrasts altogether from master orientated methodologies. Using a SBSF system may upgrade the execution of proof based practice (EBP).
